Colonoscopy and Endoscopy:(

We had to be to the hospital by 7am.  Thankfully Auntie Ali helped by putting Noah on the bus and JJ spent the night at his sitters.  When we got to the hospital we checked in at the waiting room for day surgery.  Then they brought us back to a room where they weighed him (19 pounds even).  We answered what seemed like a million questions from his nurse.  After we were done with the admissions part the anesthesiologist came in to talk to us.  Right about 9 am the took him away.  He didn't know the difference but it was all I could do not to cry!

The whole procedure took about an hour.  Once he was awake they came to the waiting room to get us.  When we went back to the recovery room he was snuggling some nurse.  When he saw me he got upset until I took him from the nurse and gave him lots of kisses.  When we were moved back to the Day Surgery side he took a bottle and had lots of gas all of which was very good:)  We did notice he had some sort of rash breaking out on his skin.  The anesthesiologist came and said it was probably from the harsh detergents used on the blankets and sheets. We got some fantastic photos of his colon, stomach and upper part of his small intestine too!

Once we left the hospital we went home and took a nice long nap:)  You never would have know what he went through that day:)

We received a call with the results last night "Good News!  Everything looks great!"  While we are thrilled there is nothing wrong structurally it still leaves questions.  The biggest is what keep making him sick??
